Discuss Not sexy but Important

Before I post anything more about what is going to be discussed I would ask that you take a few minutes to watch the below video and then post about what it says to you, it is less than two and a half minutes long:

Not Sexy

I wasn't expecting to be as affected by this film as much as I have been. I already knew what the topic and the nature of the video was about before I clicked on it but I just didn't expect I guess to be blind sided so quickly and to be confronted with the facts but then that is what makes it so powerful.

Any thoughts on this?

That was a really interesting approach to a serious and uncomfortable topic. Good way to make a point, I think. Why is sexy even important, when we have real world issues to deal with. Thanks for sharing sun. I haven't heard or seen anything about this before now, and I'm glad I watched it!

It's an odd approach, I'm still not sure if the discomfort was the focus they were going after but it was very weird.

It's a sad truth of our world that slavery, rape, trafficking and murder are some of the most common things happening to children in this world. I wish it was as easy as simply "saving" them but it's not. These countries are war-torn, run by dictators or function with little to no law in place. I don't know how we can save most of those people without saving their countries and that is a very tall order.

You are right Merc, I think the problem is that this issue is such a huge one it can often be difficult to do anything in the immediate in a "cannot see the tree for the woods" sort of way. I think what makes this affective is this is a difficult subject to approach, it is not sexy but if that can help it stick in peoples minds I hope this works to that effect.
